FARCE. A Manhattan art dealer, Reginald Broake, discovers a rare Picasso painting and jumps at the opportunity to purchase it. Broake invites two wealthy art enthusiasts to his gallery in hopes of creating a bidding war for the rare piece. But before his clients arrive, the gallery’s security guard, Max, suffers a freak accident in which his face bursts through the center of the prized Picasso portrait and he is unable to remove his head from the painting. With the artwork ruined, Reginald thinks all is lost, including his gallery. However, when the art enthusiasts arrive, they are enthralled with what they think is an extremely rare three-dimensional Picasso. And with the portrait even more hideous than expected, these art collectors are convinced that it might be the most valuable Picasso ever discovered. But with a Picasso stuck on his head, Max finds it difficult to woo his secret love, Reginald’s daughter, and it soon becomes apparent that art, like love, is truly most appreciated by the eye of the beholder!
